NBJ London was previously using Sage Job Costing to manage their business processes. After struggling with basic functionality and an aged system, they decided to change software to help manage their projects and gain a clearer view of their business.

Eque2 was considered as a software provider, along with JNC. Sharon Burke, Director for NBJ London, says, “Eque2 definitely had a more professional approach when selling and presenting their software solutions, we could instil our trust into the company from day one, very quickly we found Construction Lite for Sage 50 Accounts, the solution ticked all of the boxes for us and fitted the size of our business perfectly.”

The business required a solution to manage the whole job costing lifecycle which would provide the exact position of a job at any point, and would include accurate tracking of NBJ’s retention and applications management.

Sharon says, “Construction Lite for Sage 50 Accounts is 100% more functional then Sage 50 Job Costing. It has allowed us to work far more productively and has reduced risks arising because the system highlights when costs are too high. Having software to manage this for us has definitely saved the business time and money.”

NBJ also runs Sage 50 Accounts and Payroll, with full integration between invoices in Sage 50 Accounts and timesheets within Sage 50 Payroll. This has allowed them to manage all of their business processes in one fully integrated solution.

The reporting module has been of huge benefit to NBJ. Sharon comments, “The reporting module is excellent and provides the management team with everything they need, from the percentage profit on a job, to retention reports and work in progress reports. The reporting module is so flexible and user-friendly, and exports the data into a Microsoft Excel format we are familiar with.”

The business has been extremely impressed with how easy-to-use and intuitive Construction Lite for Sage 50 Accounts is. Sharon says, “The software is very user-friendly and modern. When speaking with the technical support team, I was extremely impressed with the service provided. I was able to get straight through to someone on the phone and they were friendly and professional, ensuring all my issues were resolved.”

“I would recommend Construction Lite for Sage 50 Accounts to anyone in the construction industry, the system has allowed us to work far more productively as a business and has saved us a substantial amount of time since moving over from Sage 50 Job Costing.”
